The first didn't go over well with critics but still sold relatively well and now, a portable follow-up has been confirmed.
Capcom's Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes for the PlayStation 3 and Wii didn't drag down high scores, but it still managed to gain a big enough following to warrant a sequel. The publisher recently reported that Samurai Heroes had "met or exceeded" its sales expectations of 500,000 units (likely thanks to a good showing in Japan), so they figure a sequel would be worthwhile. But they're downsizing the concept: according to an announcement at Capcom's official blog , Sengoku Basara: Chronicle Heroes will release for the PSP in Japan this summer. They provide no information concerning a Western launch and although we're hoping to see it in the US, Capcom may have determined that such a game should stick to Japan. If you're not familiar with this style of gameplay, it's best to describe it as similar to Dynasty Warriors , with tons of enemies and standard hack 'n slash action.
We'll let you know if Capcom makes a Chronicle Heroes confirmation for the Western audiences.
